Over the last few years, we've been following AgVenture grower Aaron Paus and his AYS Jeremy McCroden. Together, they've implemented new practices for variable rate irrigation as well as managed some great crops.
Matthew Paul recently joined the AgVenture family, taking over the role of general manager. We sat down with him to talk about his background and what he’s looking forward to most about working with AgVenture.
Hey Matthew, welcome to the team! Before joining AgVenture, what was your career background?
My name is Aly Ries. I am a senior at the University of Wisconsin Platteville majoring in Ag Business with a minor in Agronomy. I grew up in South East Minnesota on a crop farm, and I work part time on a dairy farm. Growing up on a farm, as well as being involved with organizations like FFA, taught me quite a bit about agriculture and inspired me to pursue a career in the industry. Prior to working for AgVenture, I interned at the University of Minnesota Extension- Rochester. After two years with the extension, I was hoping to find something related to sales.
Today's farmer grows twice as much food as his parents did, using less land, energy, water and fewer emissions. This kind of progress simply wouldn't be possible without a dedication to innovative seed technology and high-yield strategies. Typically, corn and its agricultural and economic impacts are the conversation topics and headline makers. So, to make sure nobody feels left out, we took a moment to dive into the world of the soybean and its role in the future of agriculture. See for yourself!
